Illinois wants to ban Google Glass for drivers before it even launches

Illinois is the latest state to consider banning the use of Google Glass while driving; this is interesting because the ban is being considered before Google Glass is even widely available to the public.
Odds are that the lawmakers wanting to ban Google Glass have never held the device in their hands, much less actually used it. Illinois and other states are concerned that Google Glass will become a distraction to drivers. Illinois State Senator Ira Silverstein filed legislation this week that would bar motorists from using Google Glass.
"It's just another way people will be distracted," the Chicago Democrat told the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers. "People's attention to the road should not be interrupted."
Similar legislations in Delaware, New Jersey, and West Virginia have also been introduced. Google Glass is currently only in the hands of developers, and is expected to launch for the public in 2014.
The use of Google Glass isn’t only being challenged for drivers; a restaurant in Seattle has issued a ban against any diners wearing Google Glass
